Exciting Times hugo sonnery's AI blog

Hello World

Together with fellow researchers at Mila (the Québec AI Institute) and the Vector Institute, we have the pleasure of inviting you to join the Music + AI Reading Group. Our reading group gathers every Friday at 2pm Eastern Time.

Our topics of interest cover (beware : the list is not exhaustive !) :

  • 🎹 Music Generation
  • 🧠 Music Understanding
  • 📇 Music Recommendation
  • 🗣 Source Separation and Instrument Recognition
  • 🎛 Acoustics
  • 🗿 Digital Humanities …
  • 🙌 … and more (we are waiting for you :]) !

Our purpose is to build an interdisciplinary forum of researchers, students and professors alike, across industry and academia, working at the intersection of Music and Machine Learning. During each meeting, a speaker presents a research paper of their choice during 45’, leaving 15 minutes for questions and discussion. The purpose of the reading group is to :

  • Gather a group of Music+AI/HCI/others people to share their research, build collaborations, and meet peer students. We are not constrained to any specific research directions, and all people are welcome to contribute.
  • People share research ideas and brainstorm with others.
  • Researchers not actively working on music-related topics but interested in the field can join and keep up with the latest research in the area, sharing their thoughts and bringing in their own backgrounds.
